Rest & Revival

our projects

The brief for this new Wanaka residence was for a low-maintenance dwelling from which the clients could enjoy Wanaka’s unique water- and alpine-based recreational activities year-round. Special emphasis was placed on merging the indoor and outdoor spaces to reinforce and celebrate connections to the environment.

Materially, the house is one of two halves, with a relatively solid facade of warm cedar cladding providing shelter and privacy from the public realm of the street. In counterpoint, the west-facing facade is almost entirely transparent.

The interior materials palette reflects the strength of the Otago countryside and is intended to blend the transition from the indoors to the landscape beyond.

This is evident in the ensuite with its large windows to allow in an abundance of light and views to the garden's calming influence. Even the mirror is placed to reflect the mountains behind, while views from the bath are of Treble Cone and Black Peak.
